Ingredients

  • ½ cup oats, rolled, old fashioned, or large flake
  • ¾ cup dairy or non-dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoon nut or seed butter
  • 1 tablespoon hemp hearts
  • 2 teaspoon chia seeds

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS

  • 1 tablespoon chopped nuts
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin or sunflower seeds
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or honey
  • fruit
  • extra milk
  • unsweetened coconut

Instructions

  • In a glass jar or a bowl, combine oats, nut butter, chia seeds, and hemp hearts. Add a splash of the milk and mix everything together. Add in the rest of the milk and stir to combine.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight, or up to 5 days.
  • Serve warm or cold. You can warm it up in the microwave. Heat in small increments, stirring often, until it’s the temperature you like.
  • Top with chopped nuts, seeds, and fruit if using. Drizzle with maple syrup or honey if using.

Notes

STORAGE: Will keep in the fridge, in an airtight container, for up to 5 days or freeze for 6 months.
MAKE IT VEGAN: Use non-dairy milk such as almond, coconut or cashew.
MAKE IT NUT FREE: Use seed butter instead of nut butter and add extra seeds instead of the chopped nuts as a topping.
